Yesterday I told you I had a bad day. Today I'm feeling a little better. A good night sleep is not to overrated, it can heal almost anything. Also the immense grief you get by getting a serious diagnosis of the doctor..... So when I've told it to My family and also tried to get it from a distance I will tell you about it too.
BUT NOW - lets talk about something much more pleasant; this art journal page of mine, and what I've been using and how I built up this page, okidoki? :-)
This time I'd used my big Dylusions Art Journal
then I use some baby wipe and covered the whole page with white gesso
I took a rubber stamps from the beautiful collection En liten hilsen from Rubber Art Dance and stamped Tenker på deg (thinking of you) sentiment over a old book page
and LOVE from the Arty Hearty collection of Rubber Art Stamps
then I took the heart rubber stamps from Arty Heart Collection of Rubber Art Stamps and stamp some heart over an old book page
with my scissor I cut out the different peaces in squares and use Matt Gel Medium to glue them down to my page
I mixed white gesso with some water and brushed the page with gessowash
I used a old stencil, unsurewhich brand and smeared some Modeling Paste with my sparkel here and there on my page
Then I took my gelatos and colored the page using my fingers
I took the Rubber Art Dance Stamp from the Artsy Heartsy collection and stamped some more heart on my page
with a ornament Stamp bougth at Panduro Hobby (unknown name of the stamp) and Archival Brilliance Galaxy Gold Ink Pad I stamped a little here and a little there
THEN, my friend, I find this absolutly specatular flower stamp from the collection called Antique Botanicals of Rubber Art Stamp and stamp it with Distress Ink. For the leaf I used Distress Ink colour Forest Moss and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and meltet it with my heat gun
The same technique i used for the flowers as well. Distress Ink in the colour Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Marmaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glas and embossing them with Clear Embossing Powder. The results became just yammy yammy, don't you agree? :-)
For a frame I glue down Lace around the edge.
